You said, "There are at least as many Wayne State grads at the top Michigan firms as there are Michigan grads, and most of them will tell you that you are an idiot for paying twice as much tuition to get the same job." Seems to imply that someone would be an "idiot" to take UM over Wayne (because of price) because both lead to the "same jobs." I guess this does directly contradict what you say a couple of sentences later regarding only the top percentages at Wayne being on equal footing as UM grads. So, which is it?
What difference does it make where the advice giving Wayne grads fall in the class? You first talk about lawyers from Wayne and UM telling FUTURE law students (don't know where they're going to fall in the class yet) to take Wayne over UM because the tuition is cheaper and they will get the same jobs. These future law students don't have rankings yet.You then say that one has to be in the top 20% at Wayne to get these jobs. So that would mean the lawyers would be telling the future law students, "you should take Wayne over UM because of the tuition, but you're going to have to be in the top 20% at Wayne to get the same job as any UM grad can get." Nobody would give this advice, and it's contradictory to what you first said as CLEARLY all the future Wayne grads and all the future UM grads will not get the "same jobs." Why would somebody tell someone that they should take a chance at a school where they only have a 20% chance of being in a postion where they could get a job at this firm. Simply put, knowing that any UM grad can get a job at this firm and that only 20% of Wayne grads can get the same job, why would a lawyer say that a future law student should pick Wayne because this future law student will get the same job?
i agree...T4 schools suck.
Yeah, I understood Ender's point pretty clearly. This thread is cursed or something, it only seems to get worse.
